Top Reads of 2014

Dear Readers,

As we wrap up our food news and culture programming for 2014, we’re taking a look back at your favorite posts. Some, like “Why I’m not a ‘Foodie'” are oldies but goodies – still bringing new eyeballs to the page almost a year and a half later. Others, like Monica Johnson’s wonderful series “Putting Up Your Harvest” were new this year and allowed us to branch out into new territory.

To date, we’ve published 520 articles by 81 amazing authors and talked about everything from food trends to life on a farm to food deserts. And we need your thoughts and words to keep it going. As always, we’re looking for more writers and editors to join the Food Politic. So make it your New Year’s resolution to catch up on some reading and get to writing. We all know you have something great to say.
